Happy New Year one and all!
After a fantastically full-on Christmas period we would like to take this opportunity to wish our customers a Happy New Year and thank you all for your loyalty and ongoing support throughout 2019.
Last year was yet another busy and successful year for The Bull with lots of exciting events taking place which were hugely popular with our customers.
2019 saw the launch of our Wine Club where members were treated to wine tasting evenings, giving them the opportunity to sample our new wine lists throughout the seasons. Wine was also the focus for many of our other events this year, including our first ever ‘Battle of the Bottles’ night and our Ridgeview Wine Supper. Both events were highly successful and we look forward to holding similar events in 2020.
We continued to support our partner charity, Albion in The Community, throughout 2019 and raised funds by taking part in their ‘Blue and White Day’ and hosting a ‘Meet the Legends’ evening which was thoroughly enjoyed by the many Albion fans who attended.
The summer months saw many more busy days and nights with the reopening of our legendary ‘Shack’, outdoor cinema and two truly buzzing evenings with DJ Danny M who bought Ibiza to the heart of Ditchling. The kitchen garden also continued to bloom throughout the summer months and we were able to grace our menu with our lovingly homegrown ingredients.
At the end of the summer, in September, we were absolutely thrilled to be crowned the winners of two awards at the annual Great British Pub Awards. We took home the awards for ‘Best Garden’ and ‘Best Freehouse’ for the third time. Winning the industry ‘Oscars’ once again capped an amazing two years for us at The Bull, following our significant renovation and expansion program that took place during 2017-18.
So, how are we going to top all that in 2020? Well, we have lots up our sleeves for the new year and plan to continue to strive for the very best for our customers including new and exciting events, a superior, locally sourced menu and as always, providing our unique friendly atmosphere which we are famous for.
Here’s to 2020 – we look forward to seeing you all very, very soon!
